Really!! So glad to hear that, P! YAY!
except for one thing: my parents have had a microwave for over twenty years. my mom regularly uses it for a cup of instant coffee... hardcore!
No way! Your mom is so non-German! She's a hardcore Japanese microwave-user at heart...!
I always just turn the timer to a random amount of time that will definitely not pass before having done the laundry/used the toilet/made a cup of tea/other activity, then go back to the kitchen to stop it when I feel that "it's time". Ben still asks me how much time needs to be set. I've told him that, after having used a microwave often enough, he will one day "just know"...
